Well this is my first blog….ever! So if anyone out there actually ends up reading this, please be patient and forgiving.
I decided to start this blog to talk about and discuss, with anyone who wanted to, my/their experiences adopting children from Asia and our subsequent return to Asia (China and Vietnam) some years later.
We decided it was time to take our two girls back to their home countries this year and so at the end of June, we embarked on a three week journey (and a ‘journey’ in the figurative sense it was too) back to China where we adopted our oldest daughter who is now 14 and to Vietnam where we adopted our youngest daughter who is now nearly 12.
The trip was fabulous, very intense and very gratifying in so many ways.
There is so much for me to process and I thought I would be well-served by sharing some of it and by getting to know some other folks perhaps in a similar situation.
I will begin in earnest in the next day or two with the beginning of our adoption journey in words and pictures.
